MacKenzie set for St Mirren return

St Mirren will welcome Gary MacKenzie back into their squad for Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Hearts.

The defender sat out last weekend’s 0-0 draw against Hamilton with concussion but is available to return.

Long-term absentee Cody Cooke (knee) remains out but he is making good progress in his recovery.

Injury-hit Hearts have no fresh concerns ahead of their trip to Paisley.

Boss Craig Levein said Steven Naismith (hamstring), Craig Wighton (knee) and Peter Haring (pelvic injury) are back out on the grass but have not resumed full training.

Jamie Walker, Ben Garuccio and John Souttar are all still recovering from their injuries, while the return of Conor Washington (hamstring) is some way off.

Provisional St Mirren squad: Hladky, P McGinn, Waters, Broadfoot, MacKenzie, McLoughlin, Magennis, Erhahon, S McGinn, Flynn, Foley, Andreu, Djorkaeff, MacPherson, Durmus, Mullen, McAllister, Morias, Obika, Lyness.

Provisional Hearts squad: Pereira, Doyle, White, Hickey, Berra, Smith, Brandon, Halkett, Dikamona, Irving, Damour, Bozanic, Whelan, Clare, MacLean, Ikpeazu, Keena, Meshino, Zlamal.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
